5 tips you will need help you decide which moving service to use

5 tips you will need help you decide which moving service to use

  • Find an experienced moving service who will help guide you through your relocation needs for your household or business commercial storage
  • Find out how many years they have been in the business of moving household storage items
  • Investigate how their moving service have handled the relocation of other business commercial storage and household  storage items to public storage.
  • Discuss with the moving service upfront how they will move your household items to your self storage unit
  • They should have competitive advantages that other companies cannot boast.

First in, last out moving & self storage solutions

First in, last out moving & self storage solutions

When finding the storage unit for your needs, storing your household possessions in just a couple of boxes won’t always be a walk in the park. Using a moving service truck means that you may have quite a few heavy items, such as a dishwasher, dryer, and refrigerator. It’s best to load them into the truck first and put them all in the back; they will be the last to leave the truck.

After the heavy appliances are loaded onto the truck, it’s time to start loading up your longer household storage such as tables, mattresses, and bookshelves. When loading up any household furniture, you will need to cover it to help keep it safe while it’s in both the truck and in your storage unit. If you’re storing any mirrors or glass in your storage container, cover them and place them in between mattress to keep them better protected.

Now it’s time to bring on the boxes. Before you load them into the moving service truck, make sure you’ve labeled them; this will make it easier to navigate instead of wasting time searching for them in your storage unit. You want to place boxes on top of appliances and furniture to allow for extra space, and make sure the heavy boxes don’t contain anything that’s fragile. Any household appliances that aren’t in a box, try to fit them in the extra space you have on the truck and in the storage unit.

Commercial Storage

Business Commercial Storage Solutions

Business commercial storage is self storage that is used for your business needs rather than for storing your personal household items. With business commercial storage, you have the ability to adjust the amount of extra space the business needs whenever needed. Rent more storage units when you need extra space, rent less when you need less, and rent the cheapest to save money by paying only for the public storage space that you use.

Not everyone knows that a storage unit can be used as a commercial self storage. Getting extra space for your business is now a safe and convenient storage option. If you reserve to accommodate your storage unit, you will find that it is monitored 24 hours a day. At Apple Storage we offer full monitoring of your belongings for no extra charge. Your business commercial storage will be safe and secure.

Insurance and Self Storage

Insurance and Self Storage Safety

High crime in Jhb and continuing house burglaries, are an unfortunate reality of life in South Africa. The costs of insuring household items is becoming more and more expensive. Also, businesses with storage for excess stock on their premises may incur significant insurance costs, which can drive up their overheads and cut into profits.

Self-storage facilities provide a simple, safe & convenient storage solution to these issues. Public storage is typically protected by armed response services and 24/7 surveillance camera coverage. Individuals looking for storage, reserve to accommodate household storage for your needs. Businesses who would like to rent the cheapest business commercial storage can safely store valuables in self-storage units, freeing up extra space and at a fraction of the previous insurance costs.

Household Storage Options

Household Storage Options

There are a few factors like Household Storage that contribute to the need for self-storage containers that remain stable from year to year. There are certain factors in our lives i.e death, divorce, and changing tastes in the housing industry that has caused a boom in business for storage container companies. With houses being put on the market, being purchased at a rapid rate and the renovation market, the need to store household items has never been greater.

A home should be a place to relax in, a place to remove any stress. However, this isn’t always the case. Your home can become source of stress for one reason or another. But a lack of extra space shouldn’t be the direct source. There are times that we can find ourselves using our homes to store everything and anything, and it this can get overwhelming. With commercial self-storage, you have the ability to adjust the amount of extra space whenever you need it, rent the cheapest self storage units and turn your home back into a home, and not a storage locker, reserve to accommodate your extra household items now.

What needs to go to your storage unit

Reserve to accommodate the following items in your storage unit

  • Store your out-of-season clothing and footwear.
  • Box up items that clutter your cupboards, taking up extra space, like excess towels, the good silver set only used on holidays, extra blankets aneeded only in winter.
  • Store photos and artworks in your self storage container that make the room look too busy or unused collectors or inherited’ items that just don’t fit your current décor.
  • If you have several collections of crockery or cooking items you may want to place them in a storage unit and rotate them at a later time.
  • Pack away extra toys and books to create extra space in your household. These items can be rotated every few months or less proving to be a safe and convenient storage solution.
  • Keep archived documents and other papers in a plastic storage container that you may need but don’t need to review on a regular basis. This way you will maintain the integrity of the document.

4 Steps for preserving storage items during long-term public storage

4 Steps for preserving storage items

The length of how long an item can be stored depends a lot on the protection and placement of the items you choose to store.

1. Clean

Wipe all furniture with a fresh cloth with the right cleaner for the type of material i.e. metal, wood, glass, etc.
let the item breathe in a well-ventilated area and dry completely before covering to prevent mould.

2. Disassemble for Easy Transport

Before you reserve to accommodate your storage unit, disassemble larger pieces furniture for household storage before the moving service takes the items to your self storage container.

Wrap these items and label these pieces together to stay organized.

3. Cover and Protect

Bubble wrap can be used to wrap items, such as framed pictures, mirrors, lamps.

Plastic storage packaging can suffocate certain materials like wood and fabrics. This can lead to mould forming. Alternatively use drop cloths, sheets or blankets to keep dust away and allow air to circulate.

4. Storing strategically

Maximise extra space in your storage unit allowing air to flow freely between the furniture, which will help protect your items, reducing the risk of accidental damage to your pieces should you ever need to remove them from your self storage units.

How it works at Apple Storage

Booking storage space

Once you have decided on the cubic meters of space you would require (should you not know, don’t panic we are there to help you) we will allocate you the correct amount of units with the right full units numbers for your convenience. So there, reservation taken care of, once you have dialed 083 326 7477 or 071 831 9357. you can reserve a storage unit for your needs. Simply tell us how many items you want to store and how long you want to stay with us, Bob’s your uncle.
You can even order packing materials through us should you need them. Or if you have packed already, let’s get going.

Packaging for Storage

A smart tip is to make a list of the items you plan to pack for storage and have that numerically numbered to the box so that in the future should you need to retrieve any items whether home or business you can do so without disrupting the entire apple cart. Try and keep relevant sizes equal for ease of packing. Use space fillers ie old newspapers, bubble wrap, styrene chips to secure your items. Make note of the particularly fragile items. The idea is to fill your boxes as much as you can so weight will be evenly distributed when stacking the boxes in your new self-storage unit. Half-filled boxes tend to buckle under the weight, so pack them last. Also remember that heavy items like tools and books need to go in smaller boxes, for easy lifting and pack them at the bottom for weight bearing. Try and think which items will you least use and pack them at the back, I know this is obvious but it those easy little things we tend to forget. Maybe stick the noted piece of paper of content of the box, on the other side of the box. Walla

Storage PackagingThis will make items much easier to find in your self storage unit and also gives you a better idea as to the overall worth of the items you are storing, and this will make your insurance specifications and content itemization so much easier. Remember to keep a copy of all this information safe at home. Finally, clean all appliances and make sure any moving parts are covered with paper and wedged in securely, as not to move around causing damage. While appliances are being moved make sure they are taped shut i.e. fridge doors and cupboard draws in fact, anything that open and shuts including your neighbour’s mouth. Pick up some masking tape from your local hardware store or ask us for some. Our pricing is competitive. So there you go! You now are deserving of Packing Wizard status. And if you need a refresher course, just ask your Apple Storage professional for tips on Storing with us.

Move into your storage unit

Bring your belongings to the storage park with your moving service, meet our site manager and sign your contract.
You can purchase a lock on site, should it have slipped your mind when you arrived here. This way, you hold the only key to your goods. With the help of our experienced ground staff, we can help you pack your storage units efficiently.

You know what it is like to keep a beautiful household clean – nicely placed items can make all the difference. Avoiding clutter may top your list. Self storage is a great way to free up extra space at home or your business. It also helps when you are downsizing and making sure that your belongings are stored away, using the appropriate process and the perfect packing materials. Apple Storage prides itself on providing the correct unit for your needs. Now all you need to know is what you want to fill that self storage unit with, here you are on your own or at least until you have informed us, then we are a team again.
If you are a parent, you are all too well aware of dealing with clothing and toys strewn around a room. Finding specific items can be the ultimate challenge. The same problem exists for people trying to find items in a self storage unit if everything is packed willy-nilly with no sense of order. With that in mind, unless your unit is small, you will want to establish a center aisle with items on either side.

Common sense and state laws determine what may be stored in a self storage unit. You alone control access to your storage space; therefore, never store live animals, perishables, liquids, explosives, flammable liquids and fuels, toxic materials, or other items that need a controlled environment or a license. Are you storing a vacuum cleaner? Remember to empty out any food you may have vacuumed up. How about scented candles? Put them in a sealed plastic storage container. Fuel should be removed from lawn mowers before they go into storage, too.

If you are storing photos, remember to keep them as flat as possible so they don’t curl – place them between two pieces of cardboard and tape the pieces together and if you are storing clothing, it will help the cause to use a wardrobe box.
Have you numbered and written on the outside of each box what is on the inside? Did you create a list on a separate piece of paper? If so, using that middle aisle to get to well-marked boxes will make it immensely easier to find what you are looking for. Likewise, it will help to store items you’ll most need to find at the front of your self storage unit.
You may want to consider stacking items on pallets to get them off the floor and provide easier access. Also, when stacking boxes, places the larger, heavier boxes on the bottom and lighter boxes as you move up. Try to fit your boxes and items as tightly as possible to allow yourself extra space.

When it comes to furniture, you should use protective covers and treat wood before storing, while also removing legs and storing tables and sofas on end to saving extra space. Refuse bins are great for storing garden equipment in self storage units.

Lock It Up

So your unit is filled nicely with room to find whatever you need. What’s left? A top-notch lock is what you need and your Apple Storage pro can help you find the perfect one to help you feel even more protected and proud of the job you just did storing your belongings.

Here are some practical self storage tips:

  1. Items that you require on a regular basis should probably be placed in the front of the storage area.
  2. Allow enough space between your items stored for easy access.
  3. Fill boxes or secure open spaces with scrunched up newspaper or towels, do this to avoid breakages.
  4. If you plan to enter your storage unit on a regular basis, moving things in and out. It would be much more convenient for you to take a ground storage unit.
  5. Try to keep your boxes in uniform sizes. They are much easier to stack that way.
  6. Storage boxes should be of a good quality for longevity, helping to protect your valuables inside the storage container.
  7. Check our list beforehand what items are allowed in our storage facility. There are prohibited items that storage companies by law are not allowed on their premises.
  8. Stand all ceramics, plates and saucers on their sides. Fill all pockets with some kind of packing material to avoid chips and damages.
  9. The heaviest items should be packed and placed on the bottom and lighter items on top.
  10. Fragile items such as glasses and kitchenware should be individually wrapped and placed near the top of well-labeled boxes with the words “Fragile” or “This way up” easily visible.
  11. Make sure all the household goods you are putting away into storage are washed and clean. Food crumbs or damp items should be removed before storage to avoid mildew and may attract pests.
  12. Furniture with drawers can be utilized as storage places for China, silverware and small items. Wrap these up in tablecloths, towels or blankets to prevent breakage.
  13. Refrigerators and freezers should be absolutely dry and before storing, to prevent damp, rust and electrical problems. The doors to these storage units should remain slightly ajar to avoid odors.
  14. Stoves and cooking equipment should be thoroughly cleaned before they are stored.
  15. To save time and space clothing and curtains can be stored on the hangers they were on in your cupboards originally. Just make sure to cover up and protect from undesired pests.
  16. Soft furnishings i.e. fabric and leather should have a protective layer or cover placed over the top.
  17. To protect the spines of your favorite books make sure to pack them flat.
  18. Store your mattresses standing upright.
  19. For insurance purposes draw up an inventory of all your stored items in case of loss.
  20. If you are storing for long periods, it is wise to make regular visits to the park to check on your items.
  21. Larger appliances make excellent packing cases for blankets, towels, tablecloths and clothes.
  22. So, when you have something valuable but no space, remember Apple Storage. Let us give you the extra space to keep your life on track.

    We strive to be the best and Apple Storage should be your choice for self storage.
